Review of Michigan's '65 Foes


For Ann Arbor's Finest Selection of
Come To

Get Mixed Up in Our
Giving a spiel is as American as ma's apple pie and Batman
comic books. Everybody's got a spiel. Maybe it's a prof's hard sell
on Thucydides or the Woolworth pitchman pushing the perfect
vegetable slicer-dicer-shredder-grater. But who hasn't got something
to tout?
Well gents, gather round. I've got a spiel to spiel, and this is
my moment for spieling.
I'm sitting in the City Room of the Michigan Daily at 10:16
p.m. I see an unkempt, homely, mess of empty Coke bottles, rumpled
paper, busted typewriters, and crowded furniture. I see signs like
"I Hate You All," and "Horatio Alger Still Lives."
There are girls in Madras and girls in sandals and some in
both, and guys with beards and button down collars.
It's a Michigan montage of people, the bizarre, the mundane,
the alive, the dreary bores. It's not a delightful mixture, but it
is, all in all, an exhilerating conglomeration of fun, ambition,-.
depression, nuttiness, pettiness, idealism, intellect, rebellion, and
The sports staff, my sports staff, is of course the same kind of
peoplized Mulligan stew, We expend vast amounts of energy glorifying
the nonsensical trivia of sport, because for some unknown reason,
a tackle, a hit, a swish, an ace sends us, and to write about it
creatively and descriptively feeds our egos even more.
Ev'ery one of us has a penchant for sport and words. The,
two fuse at the Daily.
Despite the good intentions of thousands of people, courses
taken, by many students are drudgery. The Michigan Daily is our
escape from drudgery. No, a leap into excitement is more accurate.
But it soon becomes drudgery unless we're willing to put something
into it, even only our. big toe and a thimblefull of brain cells.
So that's my spiel. A little corny, isn't it? Well, the Daily
wants cornballs and cynics, realists and dreamers, the innocent and
the jaded. We coalesce, bubble, and feud among each other here
at 420 Maynard.
Why not stick your toe into our wacky little pot?

The Michigan Wolverines will
play a 10-game schedule this sea-
son for the first time in recent
They will begin the season Sept.
18 facing North Carolina at Chap-
el Hill and play their traditional
final game against Ohio State
November 20 in Ann Arbor.
North Carolina, a third-place
finisher in the Atlantic Confer-
ence last season, faces a major
rebuilding job after losing its en-
tire starting backfield and several
key linemen. Linebackers Jim Ma-
sino and Michael Harvath and
end Jim Harrington should formI
a nucleus for Coach Jim Hickey
to work around.
Home Opener
Michigan will open at home
against California. With both of-
fensive and defensive lines re-
turning intact, the Bears should
improve on last year's 3-7 record
which included close losses to
teams such as Illinois and Min-
nesota. Lineman Stan Dzura, a
6'5", 250-pounder, should take over
the spotlight that last year shone
on quarterback Craig Morton who
picked up his diploma in June.
Led. by the Southeast Confer-
ence's top rushing quarterback,
Preston Ridlehuber, the Georgia
Bulldogs will come to Ann Arbor
fresh from a 6-3-1 record and
second-place finish behind nation-I
al champion Alabama. Coach
Vince Booley, coach-of-the-year in
the SEC his first season at Geor-
gia, has five returning offensive
regulars and seven of his defen
sive stars.
Rival MSU
Arch-rival Michigan State will
come to Ann Arbor rated among
the Big Ten's top teams. Coach!
Duffy Daugherty has 26 return-
ing lettermen, including quarter-
back Steve Juday, Hawaiian bare-
foot punter Dick Kenney and re-
ceiver Gene Washington, who
caught 35 passes last year for an
all-time Spartan record.
The Wolverines will have a score

to settle when Purdue comes to
town. The Boilermakers, with sev-
en starters returning on both of-
fense and defense, should be even
better than the outfit that last
year handed Michigan its only
loss, 21-20. Purdue, beaten only
by Notre Dame, Minnesota aia
Michigan State last season, will
have a total of 24 returning let-
termen around whom Coach Jack
Mollenkopf can build.
'Remodeling Job'
Minnesota, despite 23 return-
ing lettermen, will be in the midst
of what veteran Coach Murray
Warmath calls a "remodeling job"
when the Wolverines come to
town. Warmath will have John
Hankison, who broke most Gopher
passing records last season, and
Aaron Brown, who received 27 of
Hankinson's 86 aerials, but will
have 'to replace 12 other regulars.
Wisconsin comes to Ann Arbor
with a strong defensive unit head-I
ed by Captain Dave Fronek, top;
defensive back in 1964, and an
offense that will be rebuilding
but should still be better than last,
year's. Coach Milt Bruhn will
have 16 returning lettermen on
his squad, and the team is ex-
pected to be considerably strong-
er than the one which posted a
3-6 record in 1964.
Greats Gone
All will not be Champaign in
Illinois, where All-America line-
backer Dick Butkus and massive
tackle Archie Sutton will be gone
and only 11 lettermen will return
However, the Illini will have their
entire starting backfield in tact,
including fullback Jim Grabowski,
the nation's s e c o n d-leading
ground-gainer last year with 1,004
yards and a 5.4 yards-per-carry
Northwestern will come to Ann
Arbor without Tommy Myers and
a dozen other of last year's start-
ers. Second-year Coach Alex
Agase will build around return-
ing end Cas Banaszek and half-
back Ron Rector, and he has

promising sophomores in end Don
Anderson, tackle Bob Reeder and
guard Bruce Gunstra.
Final Game
Woody Hayes will lead peren-
nial contender Ohio State into
Michigan Stadium for the season
finale. The dean of Big Ten
coaches and possessor of 65-20-6
record in 14 seasons of play, Hayes
is not as optimistic as usual.

Though he will have 21 returning
lettermen, the Buckeye mentor
will have to revamp ,Ohio State's
best defensive team in 15 years.
And even with returning quarter-
back Don Unverferth and half-
back All-America candidate Bo
Rein, Hayes must do something
about an offense that scored only
one touchdown in-its last three
games in 1964.

Michigan Songs,
Alma Mater
Sing to the colors that float in the light;
Hurrah for the Yellow and Blue!
Yellow the stars as they ride thro' the night,
And reel in a rollicking crew;
Yellow the fields where ripens the grain,
And Yellow the moon on the harvest wain;
Hail! Hail to the colors that float in the light;
Hurrah for the Yellow and Blue!
Blue are the billows that bow to the sun
When yellow robed morning is due;
Blue are the curtains that ev'ning has spun,
The slumbers of Phoebus to woo;
Blue are the blossoms to memory dear,
And blue is the sapphire and gleams like, a tear;
Hail! Hail to the ribbons that nature has spun;
Hurrah for the Yellow and Blue!
Here's to the college whose colors we wear,
Here's to the hearts that are true!
Here's to the maid of the golden hair,
And eyes that are brimming with blue!
Garlands of blue-bells and maize intertwine;
And hearts that are true and voices combine;
Hail! Hail to the college whose colors we wear;
Hurrah for the Yellow and Blue!
The Victors
fail to the Victors Valiant;
Hail to the Conquering Heroes;
Hall, Hail to Michigan.
The leaders and best.
Hail to the Victors Valiant;
Hail to the Conquering Heroes;
Hail, Hail to Michigan,
The Champions of the West.

three-year contract with the Na-

champions this week for an es-

The 6-foot-10 Russell said he
didn't think the contract was "so
fantastic," but admitted that
"each of the three years is in
six figures."
Russell, a bearded former All-
America at San Francisco who
$Vill be 32 next February, stated
last week after Wilt Chamberlain
had agreed to terms with the
Philadelphia 76ers that he would
not sign if he didn't receive "at
least $1 more than" the seven-
foot scoring ace.
Reports varied on the estimate
of Chamberlain's contract. How-
evbr, Boston observers set it at
$100,000 a year, plus various other
income from outside basketball.
Russell's salary will be strictly
for playing.
Russell was asked about re-
ports that he had considered
quitting basketball.
"To tell you the truth," he said,
"when Red and I first began

that this was going to be my last

the contract offer for about a
month and then he and Auerbach
had what was described as a

"Now I guess I'll be around
